Thirteen years and 39 programs later, the 2016-17 academic year marked our final program offerings.

We live in the midst of change: technological change, social change, political change, environmental change. How do we adapt, or not adapt... and what are the consequences?

Our Grade 10 "Change" program explored the perspectives of scientists, engineers, writers, and philosophers, as they examine the dynamics of “Change”. We looked at changes in health care and changes in demographics, explored mathematics as a way to describe change, and learned how literature articulates this theme through character development. Then there is the consideration of how change may happen: revolutionary change or gradual evolution. What are the effects of change? Climate change, biological mutations, the changing role of women in various societies. Through lectures, small group workshops, and skills sessions, we explored the commonalities and differences in change across disciplines leading to the integration of knowledge.

Here is a sample "Change" schedule.
